Titan II Missile

The Titan II, the second generation ICBM from he Martin Company, was a two stage, liquid fueled, inertially guided missile using hypergolic, storable propellants.  The fuel was Aerozine-50 (a 50-50 mix of unsymmetrical dimethyl hydrazine and hydrazine), and the oxidizer was nitrogen tetroxide.  Hypergolic fuels require no igniter, since they ignite on contact with each other.  The facts that the propellants were both storable and hypergolic gave Titan II its quick reaction time, since the missile sat on alert fully loaded, unlike the earlier liquid fuel, cryogenic systems, and could launch in less than a minute after the launch process was initiated.
